I have a theory ...

This customer with the problem loves to do all sorts of statistical
reports all the time. More than every other customer we have.

Could it be, that someone is doing something in the morning, and
thereby having a long running transaction - This will cause the gab
between OAT and NT to grow during the day.

Then at nigth they have to do there daily rutine, which is writing
some report, updating some fields etc.

To do this, they have to switch programs. And thereby they will close
every open query and commit the work.

This will cause the sweep to kick in (sinse the gab is more than 20.000).
At the same time the users starts the daily rutine, and makes new
transactions - At this time the memory consumption is at its peak, the
sweep is running and everybody complains about speed. And someone
can't connect due to the fact that all 2 Gb of RAM has been used.

Is this case - What will happed if I disable the sweep - and manually
make a sweep at nigth (just after the backup) ?
